EMBOSSED HEART


...good friends help you find important things when you have lost them, your smile, your hope, your courage...
- Doe Zantamata -


...hello everyone...today I'm sharing with you a Tag I have made using the Steampunk Set Embossing Folder...


...I took a plain manilla tag, added some old paper distress ink, then some inked texture randomly added till the whole tag was covered, a few walnut splats & a whisper of white emulsion...


...a hand cut  primitive heart in metal card, embossed with steampunk cogs...



...added cogs, metal buttons, a skattering of melted powders in old gold & aged copper...



...wrapped in wire with added ideaology...


... a distressed steampunk embossed heart, I hope you like it...



...I'm glad your here, thank you for dropping by...

  2. Wow, the melting powders really add an extra dimension to the embossed metal paper... fabulous stuff! The tag as a whole is just wonderful - that background is gorgeous, and I love that the splats are a kind of organic echo of the gears - genius! Wire-wrapping is a terrific touch...

  7. I think I like this one the best since I have bene following you. It just has such a nice feel to it.
    Great tag.
    By the way, when I saw your metal tag with the words and numbers, I remembered that i had thrown a metal tag from some scrapbook flower bits, into the garbage. I dug it out to see what words were on it...."desert flowers".
    It is now filed away in my theme drawer "garden" to be eventually used on a scrapbook layout of the year Death Valley bloomed in abundance...first time in over 75 years.
    So thanks for inspiring me to look again!
